Bradford Fellowship 2010/11 recipient Donovan Wylie talks about his Outposts series of photographs.
Gallery One: 30 September 2011 - 19 February 2012
Building upon his previous projects - Maze and British Watchtowers - Wylie's new work continues to interrogate the architecture of conflict, and derives from the idea of vision and power. Wylie was recently embedded with Canadian troops in Afghanistan's Kandahar province. From here he surveyed the military outposts which commanded multiple lines of sight, with dominance over vast swathes of land.
The Bradford Fellowship is a partnership between the University of Bradford, Bradford College and this Museum. The Fellowship is a prestigious award, given to mid-career photographers or artists to develop their professional practise in the context of our Collection.
